Browsing in Bookbuster

Bookchat: How to browse efficiently (and events Aug 6 onwards)

Seems like a contradiction – browsing and efficiency, but it isn’t. Both are necessary. Browsing equals slow and easy, gentle relaxation. Efficiency equals the speed with which you reach your goal. The more easily you hit your target for the kind of books you like, the more relaxed you will be and the bigger a bag you’ll need for your booty (or the bigger a letterbox you’ll need for your delivery – probably you’ll have to make sure a neighbour is in). Or you might be feeling thrifty so you just buy one and know that you’ve hit the jackpot. Hours of pleasure all lined up. But there are various ways to do it and you need to adapt from one place to another. Angela J. Phillip takes a look at how to organise your search.
